Along the road of pursuing happiness, you may get hit by sadness storms that change your heart and even your life. It’s part of life to sink deep just before rising to the top.
You cannot carry out with positivity all time, when it’s a time of negativity, believe that it won’t last either.
When you’re sad, you have this thought: ‘it won’t go away and may stay stuck forever.’ That’s because the heart is already engaged in a situation and cannot see any other way out.
However, don’t stop believing that this too shall pass. It’s hard to admit it at the moment, but this belief will grow stronger over time until you succeed in overcoming sadness.
The chaos left behind after every sad storm will be arranged into something beautifully healing. This is how you become more powerful.
It must be hard for you. You are having nightmare-like times. Life must be tough to go any further and all the reasons to continue are vanishing. But, let me tell you something, you are not alone in this, and it will surely pass.
Many people think about giving up times and times, yet they are still persevering. If they were to give in to despair, then the whole world would collapse out of the gloom.
Like day and night are taking over alternatively, pain and happiness are the same. You will laugh out of joy and love your days as much as you were distressed and depressed or even more.
We need to hear that everything will be alright from time to time not because we lack such knowledge but because we are not listening to our inner logic. We are carried out by strong negative emotions making it hard to be rational.
